Travel First Class to the 2012 British Open in a Pullman Train


Train Chartering released 250 limited edition luxury Pullman trains for the 2012 British Open Golf Championship, much to the delight of golfers and fans. The golf travel packages, which included dining, transfer, course entry and other privileges, were offered to individuals and groups attending the popular and prestigious occasion. The event took place last July at the Royal Lytham & St Annes Course in the United Kingdom.

The luxury trains were the roomiest first class carriages. Each train car featured 42 armchair-style seats with full-size tables designed to provide a perfect ambiance for travel, entertainment and dining. Passengers enjoyed the best Pullman dining. They were served with an English breakfast while on their way to the event, and dinner, on their way back. Uniformed stewards served the passengers while experienced on-board kitchen chefs took charge of the food preparations.

The British Open 2012 train journey started from Rugby and passed through Birmingham International and Wolverhampton until it reached Blackpool North. A coach was then provided to transfer passengers to Royal Lytham.

Train Chartering has arranged special rail travel for huge sporting events like football, golf and rugby since 1998. They have successfully organized and provided charter trains and private carriages for individual and corporate clients, as well.

“There is simply no better way to enjoy the Open 2012; comfortable First Class travel in a private train, with at-seat Pullman dining, transfers, course entry ticket and more.” said Simon Pielow of Train Chartering.
